So right now awaiting to report the first panel at the con for me, DC Direct. I got here at noon and the place was crawling with people. Geez I thought it was supposed to open to the public at 1 pm?! Still, awesome con. This is where the action is at now for Chicago and comics.
As for cosplayers. Nothing of note so far. Just one good Black Widow, Sexy Mario and Bowser (aka Rule 34 or is it 69? Herald which one is gender swapping?). Two really awful cosplayers made me gag though. A real chubby Ventress and Emma Frost cosplayers making their way around the con floor. WHY COSPLAY OF SOMETHING YOU DON'T LOOK LIKE!? AAAAH!!!
Already got some sketches reserved from Clay Mann, Mark Brooks, and another for Magneto, Holocaust, and Hela. Nothing good so far for figures. Well save the latest wave of G.I. Joes. No sign of the latest Marvel Universe figures ANYWHERE. I want my damn Beta Ray Bill!!
